Have came along the farm road many times before hoping to cache the farmer and ask for permission and today was finally the day. He was happy to let me wander down to the trig so went off for a look. After hugging the field edge and crouching under a wire (wasn't sure if electrified or not) whilst passing through a gate I was soon at the trig. Cracking views from here on a very blustery day and a fair racket from geese nearby. Glad to finally tick this one off.

Guided tour by Mr U2 after asking the farmer for permission, easiest trig found for a while! Good views of the firth and the bridge. This is trig pillar #97 for us, only a few too the century!

Log #44. Initially approached from the NE, but no-one was in at the farmhouse. Decided to try from the SW instead. Parked at Upper Muckovie farm, had a look around the buildings for someone to ask, but couldn't find anyone. The trig itself was easy to find, didn't need to go over any fences. Good condition, and looks a little short, or am I imagining things? As I was leaving, I saw the farmer, who gave me a bemused look as I pulled away. [ExP-44/MiP-0/BM-0]

View NW towards Inverness.

All intact. Only one electric fence to cross from east.

Second visit. For photographs and GPS reading. Approached from northeast. Parked in track entrance beside reservoir at NH716440. Followed track then field boundary lines as much as possible but taking a longer route via NH714433 due to dense undergrowth east of the trig area. Pillar in good condition. Spider retains OS centre cap with deep indented letters. Flush bracket faces NE, ~51. Vented through NW sight hole. 90 panorama with long views from west to north, remaining skyline either overtopped with vegetation or higher ground. Electric fences still live but checked with my test gear rather than my hand this time.

Not far from the farm and if you ask Mr Farmer nicely not only will he let you park car and walk to the trig but he will also advise you of the electric fence and to go around it or in clochandighter's case right through it. Trig in good condition

Fun on the Farm

Clochandighter's electric fence is still there, but the extremely friendly farmer showed me the right path to follow avoiding it. Trust me to pick the muddiest day of the year to visit this trig though!

First visit. To record FB number. The pillar was completed 23rd April 1953 costing 16.18s.6d. Flush bracket S7234 was levelled for height in 1954. This marker was computed for triangulation as tertiary station NH54/T28 in the Inverness secondary block during 1955. It was last maintained by the OS in June 1977. Approached from west. Zapped by electric fence in the dark.
